On Nov. 19, three males entered the Fast Time Fina on North 1st Street and stole a donation jar placed there by the family of a former Copperas Cove resident who recently died. The money collected was to be used to assist the family with funeral expenses.
During the police investigation, two suspects were identified as Timothy Sedric Martin Blackwell and Mitchell Alan Martin. A warrant was issued for each and Mitchell Alan Martin was subsequently arrested on Dec. 12. Timothy Sedric Martin Blackwell has not yet been arrested but is being sought. The third suspect has been identified and a warrant is pending.
The Copperas Cove Police Department continues to investigate this case and asks for information that could assist with the arrest of Timothy Sedric Martin Blackwell. If seen, do not attempt to apprehend Blackwell yourself. Information can be made anonymously at 254-547-1111 or www.tipsubmit.com. Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 in cash if information leads to an arrest and prosecution. Remember no one will ever ask your name.
